At Nokia World in Abu Dhabi, the Finnish company unveiled several Windows devices. Nokia introduced its long-awaited Windows tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520, and launched large screen Lumia smartphones: the Lumia 1520 and 1320.
Nokia’s first Windows tablet, the Lumia 2520, has a 10.1-inch HD display that is designed to provide outdoor and indoor readability. The Lumia 2520 combines both 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, a 6.7MP camera, and for the first time on a tablet, Zeiss optics. The Lumia 2520 runs on Windows RT 8.1, and features fast-charging capability – providing up to an 80% charge in one hour.
The Lumia 2520 pairs with the Nokia Power Keyboard. Providing up to five extra hours of battery life and two built-in USB ports, the Nokia Power Keyboard has a protective and wraparound cover, and includes a keypad with gesture trackpad, to make typing like a laptop.
The Nokia Lumia 2520 will be available in red and white in a glossy finish as well as cyan and black in a matte finish, and is expected to start shipping in Q4 2013 with an estimated price of USD499 before taxes or subsidies. Initial roll out is to begin broadly in the U.S. as well as the U.K and Finland, with additional countries to follow shortly after. The Nokia Power Keyboard will be available alongside the Lumia 2520 at the recommended price of USD149.
